Lands' End Labor Day Event: Save an Extra 30% Off Your Order, Plus Free Shipping on $50+ and Lots of Pretty Items to Love, Too!!!

Lands' End is offering an Extra 30% Off your ENTIRE ORDER during their Labor Day Event with code PUMPKIN pin 1606 at checkout until 9.1.14. Shipping is FREE on orders of $50+, too.

This is a great deal, and if you haven't taken a look at Lands' End lately, you really should! There are SO many cute things there right now, and the quality of their merchandise is very good, in my experience. However, if for some reason an item does not work out, it can be returned by mail, or to any Sears Department store at any time, since every item is guaranteed unconditionally.

From the Lands' End website:

The Lands' End guarantee has always been an unconditional one. It reads: "If you're not satisfied with any item, simply return it to us at any time for an exchange or refund of its purchase price." We mean every word of it. Whatever. Whenever. Always. But to make sure this is perfectly clear, we've decided to simplify it further. Guaranteed. Period.®

Click HERE to see just what they have to offer, and check out my picks below:

*Lace Pocket Cardigan Sweater - so feminine and pretty...especially love it in black.


*Cotton Open V-neck Cardigan Sweater - love the length and the beautiful color selection, too.

*3/4-sleeve Lace Front Crew - beautiful colors, and a great alternative to the J.Crew version.

*French Terry Textured Sweatshirt - love this, and I imagine it is extremely comfortable, too.

*Popover Tunic - wear it with a skirt or capris for a more dressed up option or wear it more casual over a pair jeans.

*Pattern Popover Tunic - same style as above, but in additional colors with adorable prints.


*3/4-sleeve Starfish Terry Boatneck Tunic - love the length and all three colors.

*Love the fabulous selection of modal turtlenecks...solids, stripes, and patterns .

*Flocked A-line Boatneck Dress - how adorable, and will transition well into fall with a pair of tights and knee boots.

*Jacquard Knit A-line Boatneck Dress - same style as the one above, and just as lovely.

*3/4-sleeve Solid Knit Surplice Dress - wear this one now with a pair of sandals, and later in the year with tights and boots.

*Knit Herringbone Boot Skirt - incredibly chic. I like to wear the boot skirts I have with a turtleneck or long-sleeve tee.

*Quilted PrimaLoft Parka - love the style, the colors, and faux-leather piping.

*Boiled Wool Walker Coat - beautiful colors, and a great alternative to the Lady Day Coat from J.Crew.

*Landmark Verona Shoulder Bag - a classic to last for years to come.


*Gold Letter Pin - so lovely and unique. A great way to personalize your outfit.

*Hoop Earrings - a true classic. I believe that every woman should own at least one pair in both gold and silver.

*Adie Elastic Loafer Shoes - the perfect alternative to wear in place of ballet flats.

*Blakeley Tall Riding Boots - another classic to last for years to come.

*Harris Suede Ankle Boots - another item that every woman should own. Perfect for wearing under jeans, pants, and even with skirts or dresses in some instances.

Are you planning on taking advantage of the extra 30% off? Have you placed an order already? Is there any item or items you would recommend? Please do share...I always love to hear from you!

Shopping Simplified@J.Crew: Extra 40% Off Promo-Priced Items & Final Sale Markdowns (with some @50% Off) + 25% Off Select Full-Price Items - WEEKEND!!!

Hello everyone! This Labor Day weekend is one filled with lots of sales, so I'm sharing yet another All Things Simplified Shopping post for those planning on taking advantage of all the great deals. My 'simplified shopping' posts will include information on the deal or % off, promo-priced items, and/or sale markdowns, and/or my personalized picks for retailers that are running current sale promotions...I basically take the work out of sale shopping for you! This time the simplified shopping is at J.Crew...

J.Crew is offering an Extra 40% Off Promo-Priced Items & Final Sale Markdowns, with some at 50% off, as well as an Extra 25% Off select full-price items with code WEEKEND at checkout until 8.31.14. Shipping is Free on orders of $100+ for a limited time, too. They have done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items at J.Crew this week...a lot of new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price (making them final sale).

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items end in $.00, $.50, or $.75, and are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

If an item is on promo or sale online, but not in the store, ask the sales associate if they will match the online price, and apply any extra % off that may be happening at that time. You can also ask to place a Red Phone order for an online promo-priced or sale item and have any extra % off taking place in the store applied to it, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Final Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that have recently been marked down below.

You can also click HERE to shop for the full-price styles eligible for the extra % off (they are marked '25% off with code WEEKEND' in red under the item name).

As I've mentioned many times before...I absolutely love Madewell.

The quality has been good on all the items I have ordered, and the pieces are all holding up very well so far. (I've shared pics of me wearing a couple of the jackets on my Instagram.)
